NEW users of Facebook’s Messenger app can sign up without an account on the social network

Rolling out in the US and Canada, Peru and Venezuela before arriving in other territories, the account-less system asks only for a phone number and a first and last name — so, just like February 2014 acquisition WhatsApp.

Users will still be able to connect with existing friends by letting the app sift through their contacts, matching them up with identical phone numbers already associated with Facebook profiles.

Thus it can place an account-less Messenger user on Facebook’s Social Graph, deduces TechCrunch, while at the same time allowing them to search among Facebook profiles for people they might know.
